I arrived in Puerto Vallarta expecting to find only Margarita bars, and I happened upon one of the best Irish Pubs I've ever been to. The food, drinks, staff & entertainment was incredible. The view is spectacular.. When you get there, you have to try their Mexican car bomb.. Oh yeah, they also make great Margaritas..

“Awesome Irish Pub in PV”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Excellent food and service at Murph`s, not too mention the view is gorgeous. Great value for your dollar, personalized, friendly service by the owner himself makes you feel truly special. You can`t go to the Malacon and not visit this pub, I guarantee you wont be disappointed. The margaritas are excellent and as for the food, we highly recommend the Guinness stew and the Shrimp & Fish Combo. Thanks Jon, we will definitely be back next time we are in PV

“An excellent pub to visit in P.V.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Went into Murphy's Irish pub when out for the evening in Puerto Vallarta - after all you can't be on holiday in Mexico and let the chance to try a drop of the Irish stuff pass you by!
The host John Murphy from Michigan has all the charm of the Irish.
Our waitress Jessica was lovely too.

We enjoyed the craic, the music and the Guinness and wine so much we thought we would stop on a while and try the food.
It was amazingly good!
We had the beer battered fish and chips which was excellent..
The onion rings however were to die for!!!!!

If you are in the Malecon area of Puerto Vallarta you MUST give this pub a try.

Was in Puerto Vallarta and ended up going back to Murphy's every time we went out at night. Great atmosphere, fantastic location and the people that work there were awesome.
